A tip....go to Nissan dealer and say you want a set of plugs for a Nissan Skyline. Man comes back with plugs and says "£85 please".

You say "Fcuk me that is dear"

Whilst he tells you they are platinum and therefore the most special plugs on the planet, look at the box and memorise the NGK reference number on the side.

Say you don't have enough money and make your way to Halfords (yes they keep them), Partco or other auto factor and say you want 6 of these plugs and never mention Skyline. They come back and say "ooo, bout 50 notes mate"

You say "oooo, thanks"

Everyones happy. :D

Mentioning Skyline usually bumps up price one way or another. Try and avoid it at all costs.

Thanks for that one, was going to use spark plugs site but now I will have a stroll up to the Granby when I get home ( if you haven't bought em all).
Dunno who worx on your car , but the Japanese car place near the trumpet major said they can cover most things for mine. Apparently oil filter is the same as the Primera ( plugs same as 200SX).
Sorry about the fred eye jack but is lonely on nightshift

Just got back from my local Partco.
Didn't have the NGK plugs in stock, didn't have a record of them either, so the very nice man behind the counter phoned the NGK didtributor and ordered them.
Result; one set of NGK Iridiums arriving on thursday (3 day delivery) and now the good news........£44 inc VAT. Real Result.

Floyd,
Any chance you could post the part no. on hear when they arrive please. Really could do with some NGK Iridiums very soon. I've heard they are the same for my R32 Gts-t. Is this true or are they different?

Cheers mate

What difference do these plugs make over standard plugs and is it noticable??

I have no idea what mine are, is that bad?

If you have no idea what they are and your car isn't highly played around with before you got it then it's likely they will be standard copper core plugs from the factory. Platinums improve performance slightly over standard plugs and iridiums improve performance slightly over platinums. Also they do slightly improve fuel consumption, or at least they did in my mates R32 GTS-T.
